I got convinced on IRC that the redundancy isn't good and so I've now 
removed the statement entirely.

I've also updated the IDL to include the [ImplementedOn=] extended 
attribute and replaced the preceding prose about it being implemented on 
those interfaces.

Finally, I updated the Terminology and Conventions section to define 
that the interfaces referred to in the spec come from DOM3Core.
